ball winder - I really should get one.  In my line of work I do A LOT of frogging.  In fact I have an entire baby blanket to frog and start over.  Literally the entire thing.  I hated the color of it and hate to waste all that yarn so it will be tossed aside until I get to frogging it....


*Now* you say this?!?!  Shocked  Cheesy  I *think* I have two of them.....I don't knit and I don't know what they are, but someone mentioned they were for winding yarn....crud. one might even have fit into the box.... Cry

Oh.  I do believe you and I could definitely be set up again in a future swap.  I had far too much fun in this one for you and had far too many ideas of things I wanted to make you!  I needed to be held back that's for sure!  I had huge plans of making edited to remove things that were not made so to add more confusion until your package arrives...   Grin
Born a tease, always a tease. What can I say?
Okay, knowing that you know a bit more about me than others might you are probably really laughing right about now!

Maybe next round I'll take on two partners - you and a second person for variety.

I am still debating when to start round 5. This truly is my absolute favorite swap!

did you take a pic of those sweaters beforehand?  those colors are just fabulous - I was so in to wanting to try the recycled yarn and now you have me all ready to do it again.... hmmm.  I am planning on going to the second hand store on Sunday possibly... hmmmm

nope sorry. The white one was a plain abercrombie hoodie with zipper(It was kinda fun to destroy something from an anti-fat company). the other 2 were just basic knit ones with a rolled collar & one w/o

These packages are all so great! I unraveled 2 sweaters for a round of this swap and used them to make 1 for my partner. Its alot of work, but a good way to get some nice yarn for cheap  Smiley

Wow!  That's a lot of yarn.  It must have taken lots of patience to unravel the sweaters!

love the coffee pillowcases! I don't drink coffee, but hubby does...he's an addict.

Guess I'd better (re)learn embroidery so I can do some cute towels and pillowcases!

I must say, I am SUPER impressed by all the amazing bargain hunted packages! (Especially the $5 ones - there weren't too many in previous rounds, so I'm totally blown away by what everyone can do with $5).

Speking of which, here's my amazing package from honeyfresh (prepair to be jealous  Wink )

A super fantastic amazing beautiful painting (there really aren't enough adjectives to describe it I'm afraid. But if fits the colour scheme of my room perfectly too!) It's brighter in real life ^^



I also got:


A sketchbook/notebook in an awesome felt-y cover (the grey one), a green pouch-thing with awesome stitches, a belt (which is very tempting to decorate Cheesy but then again, it's good to have some plain-ish belts), and the card that she wrote in. But it has an awesome front - which was handmade from someone else (I'm guessing a friend? maybe not)

Plus she's really sweet in person ^^

canvas $2.00
green felt $0.46
embroidery floss $0.30
grey felt: $0.75
notebook: $2.00
Strainer & Button - free!
Paint - stash!

Total: $5.51  Grin

Thank-you!!
